Telluride Airport 

The Telluride Regional Airport is the highest commercial airport in the United States with an elevation of

9,078 feet above sea level. It is surrounded closely by mountains of over 14,000 feet. Telluride's short runway

and instrument approach procedures do not accommodate larger jet aircraft that also lack the performance to

utilize this high altitude field effectively.  Consequently, during the winter months approximately 20% of the

scheduled commuter airline flights divert to another airport that is at least an hour and a half taxi ride from

the resort area of Telluride over winding two-lane mountain roads.

The Telluride Regional Airport is self-supporting and does not receive any funding from the community. The fees

we charge keep the airport open.  Open 365 days a year from 7:00 am until 30 minutes after sunset.  No aircraft

shall land or take off from the airport during the period between 1/2 hour after sunset and 6:00 am local time

(or 1/2 hour before sunrise, whichever is later).
